in reply to Parent directory - regex

Here is an example of a simple script to do this without using regex:

#!\usr\bin\perl use strict; my $myDirectory = "/dir1/dir2/dir3/dir4/dirLast//"; my @myDir = split('/', $myDirectory); #creates an array of Dir names pop @myDir; #removes the currnet directory $myDirectory = join( '/', @myDir); #Joins names back into parent path print $myDirectory;

Thanks,
Greg W
